You're lounging on a beachfront chaise sipping a cocktail when suddenly a family with small children armed with Day-Glo floaties, sand pails, and juice boxes traipses past you. Now, don’t get us wrong — we love the little tykes, but sometimes you just want to vacation with fellow adults. Here are some of the best adults-only resorts (many are also all-inclusive) where you can enjoy a grown-up version of "time out."

1 Auberge du Soleil — Napa Valley, California

One of Napa Valley's most luxurious hideaways is adults-only Auberge du Soleil in Rutherford. The villa-like property features Italian linens, fireplaces, and vineyard-facing terraces. After a tasting of sparkling wines at Mumm Napa, tuck into a refined meal at the in-house Michelin-starred restaurant.

2 Jade Mountain — St. Lucia

It's hard not to get goosebumps as you take in the stunning panoramas of the Piton Mountains and the turquoise sea from the comfort of your room at Jade Mountain. The luxury rooms here come with just three walls for maximum views, and there are no phones or TVs to disturb your adults-only bliss.

3 The Caves — Jamaica

Located in Negril on Jamaica's west coast, The Caves consists of 12 thatched-roof cottages spread out atop a limestone cliff, with a series of cool caves on the property. Chill poolside (Negril's famous Seven-Mile Beach is a few minutes away), lunch on jerk chicken and Red Stripes, and dine in one of the hotel's volcanic caves.

4 Turtle Island — Fiji

Guests arrive via seaplane and stay in one of 14 super-romantic Fijian-style cottages called bures at this exclusive adults-only resort on a lush island in Fiji’s Yasawa chain, complete with lava cliffs, papaya and mango groves, crystalline lagoons, and no fewer than 14 beaches. It's little wonder Blue Lagoon was filmed here.

5 Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort — Aruba
